    Say the perimeter of a square is 44 inches.

    The formula P = 4s is used.

    44 inches = 4s, where s is side of square.

    44 inches ÷ 4 = s

    11 inches = s

    What if the area is 49 inches^2?

    A = s^2.

    49 = s^2

    sqrt{49} = sqrt{s^2}

    7 inches = side of square.

    Look for a square first.

    You find the area of a square by squaring the length of one of its sides.

    If you know the area, you can find the length of each side by taking the square root of area.

    I suspect there is more to your question? Maybe specific information?

    Otherwise, if you have a square, finding the side is straightforward.
